    Story
    (10004)

    Ten years ago, Calamity came. It was a burst in the sky that gave ordinary men and women extraordinary powers. The awed public started calling them Epics. But Epics are no friend of man. With incredible gifts came the desire to rule. And to rule man you must crush his wills. Nobody fights the Epics...nobody but the Reckoners. A shadowy group of ordinary humans, they spend their lives studying Epics, finding their weaknesses, and then assassinating them. And David wants in. He wants Steelheart - the Epic who is said to be invincible. The Epic who killed David's father.

    If you could sum up Steelheart in three words, what would they be?

    Straightforward, innovative, surprising


    What other book might you compare Steelheart to and why?

    Haven't read any recently


    What about Macleod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Did an adequate job - didn't distract from story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A couple of surprises at the end. When I say surprise, I mean "I didn't even see them coming," not, "How is he going to make that happen?" An author that does that earns my utmost respect. I'm not easy to take totally off guard.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story! Fast-paced enough to keep my attention while listening on the road, but also thoughtful enough to keep my mind engaged.

    Newcago is free. They told David it was impossible, that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand.Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life simpler. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And no one in Newcago can give him answers.Babylon Restored, the city formerly known as the borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though.

    G. House Sr. says: "Fabulous -- A Must Read Sequal"
    "not quite as tight as the last one, but still good"

    Story

    A little more disjointed than the first one and some of the twists were a little less believable. Still a fun story. Interested to see what happens next.

    Story
    (57)

    A touch of computer keys, a blast of heat, and suddenly the Murry twins, Sandy and Dennys, are gasping in a shimmering desert land. If only the brothers had normal parents, not a scientist mother and a father who experiments with space and time travel. If only the Murry twins had noticed the note on the door of their mother's lab: Experiment in Progress. Please Keep Out....But it's too late for regrets.

    Would you listen to Many Waters again? Why?

    I am listening to it again. I haven't read/listened to


    What did you like best about this story?

    Bringing the story of Noah's Ark to life. I don't necessarily think it really happened quite like that, but still, it opens the mind to possibilities . . .


    Have you listened to any of Ann Marie Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I had a hard time stopping at each end of my commute.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm interested to hear
